Super easy to make and very delicious. I made half the batch plain, then added chopped cranberries and macadamia nuts to the other half batch for some extra Christmas cheer. Dipped in icing/confectioners/powdered sugar whilst still warm added a nice touch.

Just dropping the teaspoonfuls of dough/batter made for 'untidy' looking cookies tho - next time I will roll into neater look shapes with my hands or do quinelles with 2 spoons.
